8:30Registration and Breakfast
9:15Rob Krakehl – AP 1 FluidsVideoSlideshowPractice Problems etc

AP Physics 1 is once again undergoing a change! While we may feel like
we are sometimes treading water with this course, this workshop is here
to help you learn to float! I will show you everything you need to know
to make your students successful for the newly added Fluids unit. We will
discuss the Standards, sample problems, a sample timeline and sequence
for the material, and several experiments and the required equipment to
conduct them. I will also share all the materials that I have developed in
my several years of teaching the Fluids unit in my AP Physics 2 course.
10:15Coffee Break
10:45Rich Gearns – Increasing Physics EnrollmentVideo

Rich Gearns will lead us in a discussion about student enrollment in physics, and
will help us brainstorm ideas to increase enrollment
11:00Justin King and Rich Slesinski – NYSSLS AssessmentsSlideshowVideo

Your students may be taking a Physics Regents based on the New York State
Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) as early as June 2026. What will that exam
look like?
We don’t know for sure, but we have some ideas. We will share test samples from
NYS elementary and intermediate-level NYSSLS-based exams, Next Generation
physics test samples from other states, and dissect the new standards to see what
questions on the new Physics Regents should look like.
